Publisher 505 Games and developer ECC Games have announced DRIFTCE for PC and consoles, what they’re hyping up as the “definitive” drifting sim.
DRIFTCE is launching sometime this spring across Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
Here’s a rundown on DRIFTCE, plus its reveal trailer:
DRIFTCE is the definitive drifting simulation videogame, featuring gameplay elements from “Car Mechanic Simulator”: the player tunes the car in his garage and then compete in drifting challenges on licensed drift circuits.
Take the car to your garage, where you can make major modifications to it. Customising the car, swapping various parts and performing crucial changes tangibly affects car’s performances and behaviours on the track. Replace engine, suspension and exhaust parts yourself to achieve the right performance for your driving style! Create a one of a kind car with visual tuning – change body kits, paint color and decals.
A simulative experience, carefully recreated to deliver the same feeling real drifters get. A fully immersive drifting simulation – with real licensed cars and tracks – featuring different drifting styles: power drift, handbrake and clutch kick.
By clicking on a stock car, the player will be able to modify the car to fit the motorsport requirements performing crucial changes to the car and giving an opportunity to further customise the car. At this point, the player also receives an appropriate message discussing the importance of road safety. After this process some crucial car parts are altered, overall car weight is reduced and the roll cage is automatically installed. The player’s task is to choose the engine and other required components.
The game consists of a very advanced and diverse system enabling players to disassembly or even swap various car parts, such as engine parts or suspension parts. This module allows players to affect the car’s performance and behavior by changing or tweaking car parts. For example – swapping turbine or installing a bigger one may result in power boost. Each change may affect car’s performance. To check it player can use the Dyno module (available in the player’s garage).
Dyno module will guide players through tuning their cars, suggesting or highlighting essential car parts. The Dyno module will give hints to the player on how to tune his car to reach any of listed Tuning Stages. To encourage players to tune their cars, certain challenges (Time Attack, Solo Run or Gymkhanas) may be locked behind Tuning Stage requirements.
The game contains over 1900 different car parts, all available in the in-game store.
